The Link Between Education Level and Divorce

Couples in Georgia and elsewhere end their marriages for a number of reasons — each of them personal. A study out of Northwestern University suggests that there is a link between education level and divorce. Why would how much education one has possibly make a difference?

According to the study, it is all about money and job security. Those with higher education under their belts are believed to fair better in the job market and are more likely to receive wages that allow them to live comfortably. Let’s face it, money and time are both major sources of conflict in marriage. When these things are lacking, it can be a real struggle for some to keep their relationships going.

There are never any guarantees that a marriage will work out. Having all the college degrees in the world certainly won’t change things if there are problems in a relationship that simply cannot be fixed. So, even though divorce rates among the college educated have declined over the years, it is the work done at home not in school or at one’s job that ultimately makes or breaks a marriage.

Those in Georgia who feel that their marriages are beyond repair can seek help with the divorce process. It can be somewhat complicated, especially in cases that involve children or complex assets. With the assistance of legal counsel, however, it is possible to get through it swiftly, all while achieving settlement terms that both parties feels serves their best interests in the long run.
